Former Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Seattle, WA (US)
Former Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Seattle, WA (US)

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Very Dynamic, good place to start career, learn lot of things in less period of time, Business is growing and expanding so too many things to learn

Cons

One gets lost on the core and delivering due to so much happening around. Too much volatility due to continuous change in the business. Promotions are hard. Career and self development is neglected.

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer I in Seattle, WA (US)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - The smart ones are some of the smartest teammates you will ever have
    - You WILL learn a lot
    - you get paid like a boss coming right out of school

    Cons

    - The dumb ones are some of the dumbest people you will encounter (and may drag you down with them)
    - Every once a while, you may be put on a nasty project. sometimes by yourself. sometimes without any help, but they have expectations that you'll finish. early.
    - you will have to wear a pager and be on call some time (some teams have light schedules, with one week per every 4 months, but some teams make you go on call one of every 3 weeks)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let someone be a manager just because they have been there for 10+ years. if they're not fit, it's time to recognize that and either add someone else or just swap him. Horrible Management means capped creativity (which kills a product innovation team)
